Covid-19: Germany, Italy, Maldives & Bangladesh bar travellers from India
NEW DELHI: Germany, Italy, Maldives and Bangladesh have restricted entry of travellers from India with immediate effect due to the Covid situation here. Now, only German nationals and holders of a German resi nt permit travelling from India are allowed to enter there. Lufthansa and Air India say they are not suspending flights between the two countries.
Italy has barred foreign travellers who have been in India in the past 14 days from entering the country. Italian resi nts in India will be allowed to return with a negative test result before departure and on arrival, when they will have to go into quarantine. Maldives tourism minister Tweeted Sunday: “With effect from April 27, (Maldives’ health authorities) suspends tourists travelling from India to Maldives from staying at tourist facilities in inhabited islands.”
The highly infectious Coronavir s mutant in India has led to several countries in past few days barring or restricting travellers from the country. These include UK, UAE, Canada, Kuwait, Oman, Hon g Kong, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Indonesia.
German Health Minister Jens Spahn Tweeted (English translation) Saturday: “The newly discovered vir s mutation in India worries us very much. In order not to jeopardise our vaccination campaign, travel to India must be significantly restricted. Therefore, the federal go nment will shortly declare India a vir s variant area. From Sunday night, only Germans from India are allowed to enter, they must also be tested before departure and immediately after entry into a 14-day quarantine.”
Sad, if we had educated PM we would not be in this terrible situation..
The pandemic exposed Mudi's incompetence to the world. Such badly handled. Early this year during Davos he cmed victory over Covid19 and promised to help other countries. Now India has halted vaccines and other medical supplies to the other nations and in turn seeking help from home. I wish we over this pandemic and Mudi's crisis soon. Stay strong Indians.
even Bangladesh has banned indians, tv reports say. how can our pm visit bangla now? good that ions are over
we poor Indians are suffering due to our wrong decisions in 2014 and then 2019..
I wish india had banned foreign travellers from first week of March onwards. covid would never had spread across India.
chaiw cannot handle or ex te from day. only bringing death to India.

Modi failed to gauge the seriouness of second wave of the pendamic in advance. Adding to the injury, as per his habit, Kejriwal created panic by repeatedly appearing in media (although Delhiites do not take him seriously)
Bangladesh is banning Indians!! What a sorry state our illiterate PM has brought us to
The covid19 pandemic is the Agniparikshya of Narendra Modi as PM. He fails miserably in containing pandemic. The situation may worsen in the coming weeks.
The number of countries barring Indians shows we have become pariahs of the World. The Irony is even Pakistan treats us like a leper and has denied us entry. What respect we will command in the eyes of the World ?
I think EU should bar people from India altoghether
all credit goes to the uneducated JOKER
Guys please wear masks and vaccinate ASAP. We must and we will beat this vir s. Stay strong Stay positive
It shows modi and shah are all talks and no future ready ess , He is the biggest bluff master of all times.
All countries should ban India. Our chaiwa went to these countries tirelessly and wasted so much money. We need to encorage investments with transparency rather than travelling and begging. BJP promised acche din !!
Where are those days ?
Half the World will ban Indian travellers including Somalia
OUR PM WAS ERRONEOUSLY ELECTED AS PM. PM FAILED IN EVERY ASPECT. IT IS BETTER FOR OUR NATION TO RESIGN PM ON MORALITY BASIS.
Desh Ke Aage Kuch Nahi
As expected, very soon most of the countries will bann Indians. The way cases are increasing in India the day is not far when we will have more than a million cases everyday. Just Imagine that day, We don't have enough hospital beds, medicines and Resources to cope up with that. All hell will break loose that day.
RAVI SHANKER SAHU

Bangladesh also banned Indians, what a shame
